Happy Wednesday, everyone! May I tell you all how I really like posting my food here? More than once I've stopped myself from eating something by thinking-- "I don't want to have to tell them I ate THAT..." ) Here's me today:

Breakfast: Eggbeaters with spinach and mushrooms, 1 cup sliced fruit

Lunch: 1/2 turkey sandwich (turkey, lettuce, tomato, mustard, 1 slice whole wheat bread), 1 cup vegetable soup -- I'm getting really tired of this for lunch, but our work cafe has been on this comfort food spree lately, damn them. Oh, the fried things I've passed up! You could SMELL the calories getting off the elevator. I'm too lazy to bring my lunch

Dinner: Broiled chicken breast w/ dijon mustard, baby zucchini, tomato, 1 oz honey whole wheat pretzels, nectarine

Snack: FF yogurt

Exercise: My brain is thinking up excuses (the heat, my skinless ankle, etc.)-- I'll report back if I win the battle with my brain!
Water: 50 oz, ice tea, diet coke

Cecily - I find it really helps posting my food/exercise too! Well done on avoiding the work cafe comfort food!

Laura - And what is wrong with pizza for breakfast?! Its good to break with convention, you know! And skipping meals.....not terribly good for the blood sugar levels and metabolism, or so they say!

Good morning everyone! I have PT this morning, it's become a joke w/some my friends because I really look forward to going... first of all my knee is doing much better and I've been able to do cardio for 45 mins for the first time since March when I did whatever I did to it. And of course, I have this really HUGE crush on the the PT guy. I feel like I'm back in high school or something. Whatever it is, last time I actually giggled while doing leg lifts

Anyway, I was ok yesterday until dinner, when we went out with a cousin of mine that I haven't seen in a long time who's getting married, I don't know why I chose what I chose, I guess for one moment the old Beth snuck back in, because I love Chicken parm! The good news is that I ate about 1/3 to 1/2 and I was satisfied, the bad news is that it pushed me over my points for the day. Well, today is all new again...

Here's my food from yesterday...


2 - coffee
1 - egg whites
3 - ww muffin
5 - zone bar
2 - coffee
8 - mozzerella and tomato
10 - chicken parm
31 points (3 over)

Have a good day everyone!

MMMM, pizza for breakfast. My kids thought it was funny, except my almost 7 year old who was offended. "Mommy, you can't have that for breakfast, that's dinner food." She cracks me up!
ACK-tell me about it! Got home from TKD and was so grumpy 'cuz I was so hungry! I was so busy with laundry and housework yesterday, I just grabbed the granola bar and decided to call it lunch. Then I skipped the snack I should have had before TKD which made it even worse. I've learned a valuable lesson.

Glad to see you're perking up and back OP, Claire. Grilled herring--yum!

Hope you have a good weekend, Cecily! With good choices!

Laura: Kashi this, Kashi that, "Kashi waffles"? Gordon Bennett! Is there anything Kashi doesn't make? I reckon the 3FC community keeps this company in business!

I had an interesting day yesterday, I was so busy and food just really wasn't a major issue for me.

So, I had my normal breakfast, a Zone bar for lunch because I was too busy to go to the cafeteria, then I had a 2pt bar as a snack, and went out with some friends to a race in Central Park. After the race we went to a bar, I had basically a sip of light beer all night. Went home and realized that I hadn't eaten, had a cheese stick and went to bed.

When I looked at my journal this morning, I realized that I had only eaten 15 points all day! That's not something that I've ever done before. Usually, I would have been so focused on not eating that I would have binged or, gotten drunk and then eaten whatever bar food there was, usually fried.

So, here's my food from yesteday...

2 - coffee
3 - ww muffin
1 - egg whites
5 - zone bar
2 - 2 pt bar
2 - string cheese
15 points (out of 28)
